LED light system tested at BMW
Shift work means stress for the body Working under artificial light disrupts such things as
the natural day-night rhythm. In order to improve the lighting situation. For employees with
rotating shifts, researchers from the Fraunhofer-Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy
Technology (UMSICHT) and sleep researchers from the Porz am Rhein hospital investigated
the non-visual use of LED technology in a study at the BMW Group plant in Munich.
Studies prove ergonomic benefit –
utilize funding opportunities
IGR tests products for their ergonomic properties. After successful testing
the seal of quality "Ergonomic product". This is proof of the applicability for the various
requirements and needs of the users.
Field studies address an extended area of applications and investigate the fundamental
effects and sustainability of relative ergonomic technologies and the effectiveness of
behavioural ergonomic actions.
